Doppio is excited to join our Partner, Orderful EDI SaaS Platform, in announcing the Orderful connector for Infor M3. The Orderful connector is available via the Infor Marketplace and enabled by a certified partner, like Doppio. 

While EDI has been used for decades, a typical implementation for Infor M3 requires many customized mappings and configurations for both inbound and outbound transactions. The Orderful Connector for Infor M3 was built to accelerate time to value by providing a smooth, configurable interface between Orderful and Infor which allows integration partners like Doppio Group to focus on customizations for complex business requirements.

Introducing the Orderful Connector for Infor M3

The Orderful plugin for Infor M3 is a meaningful improvement for organizations seeking to modernize their EDI integration set up and testing. Developed and released by Infor Product Management, the connector facilitates data interchange between Infor CloudSuite and Orderful API, the fastest way to trade EDI. At its core, this connector provides a streamlined method for transforming XML data and communicating with the Infor M3 API, streamlining the exchange of EDI documents.

The key advantage of the Orderful to Infor M3 Connector is its simplicity and ease of use. Instead of relying on custom scripts or manual processes to transform and transmit EDI data, organizations can leverage the connector’s pre-built functionality to automate these tasks. This not only saves time and resources but also reduces the risk of errors associated with manual intervention.

  • Cost Efficiency: By eliminating the need for on-premises EDI infrastructure and custom development work, the Orderful to Infor M3 Connector offers significant cost savings for organizations. This is because consultants are able to focus on customization work instead of the mapping setup that is time consuming and typically routine. 
  • Reduced Complexity: The Orderful Connector acts as an accelerator to getting onto the Orderful platform, which reduces the complexity of integrating EDI within M3. This in turn also helps to reduce project risk and also reduces cost given that less development hours are required for the implementation as a whole.
